The Colorado St. Rams will take their undefeated record into Alaska Airlines Arena to face the Washington Huskies at 5:30 p.m. MT on Saturday.
The Rams (3-0) have used defense to get off to their fast start this season. They've held their first three opponents to less than 65 points while averaging 75.0 points themselves. They are the 11th-best rebounding team in the country at 45.0 per game which makes up for a decent but not great offense. Both Colton Iverson (10.0 rpg) and Pierce Hornung (12.0 rpg) average double-figure rebounds as they've been the primary culprits in the Rams' rebounding advantage.
But Iverson hasn't stopped there. He is third on the team in minutes while averaging 17.3 points on 66.7% shooting to go along with his rebounding numbers. The senior did not play last year but prior to this season had never averaged more than 5.4 points per game.
The Huskies have lost two of their last three games including a one-point loss to Albany in the second game of the season. The Huskies have four players averaging double-figure scoring led by Abdul Gaddy (16.0 ppg) and C.J. Wilcox (15.5 ppg). Aziz N'Diaye averages a double-double of 11.5 points and 11.8 rebounds per game.
